Measurement in the Land of Oz and Some Updates!

This week we have been all about measurement!  My little kiddos are doing a fantastic job of measuring accurately with a centimeter ruler and they are loving the Wizard of Oz theme!  Here are some pics of them in action!

This little guy is practicing drawing lines of a given length.
It takes a lot of practice to be able to hold the rule
and actually draw a straight line.

This activity has been a HUGE hit!
I made an interactive reader about the Wizard of Oz
and on each page the kids have to measure different objects!

And of course we had to do some measuring

These little fellas are measuring different
characters from the Wizard of Oz.

Since the Wicked Witch got pinned under the house
hey had to hire some new witches
We did some measuring to see which witch
was shortest to tallest.

Since we were "off to see the wizard" we thought it would
be a good idea to see how tall some of the
wizards in training were.

My grade ones are working on nonstandard units of measure
so we have been measuring with all kinds of things found
 in a magical kingdom!

Here the kids are measuring with magical frogs:)

And these little ones are measuring with magical shields!

I also wanted to let you know that I have updated two of my products.
This first one just needed a little MelonHeadz update!  When Nikki posted her new pirate graphics I just knew I had to put them to good use!

If you already own this unit you can go to "My Purchases" on TpT and
download the unit again to get the new graphics.
If you are looking for a unit that will actually teach your kiddos how to do 2-digit addition with regrouping this unit will take your students step-by-step.  Guaranteed success! click HERE.

The second unit that got some updating was my Classroom Door Decor bundle.

I had some requests so I spent yesterday adding 31 pages to this pack.
You just have to download it again to get the new pages.

And totally not school related ~ I just had to share with you my beautiful baby girl's teeth!
She got her braces off on Thursday after 2 years and 6 days (but who's counting!) and they are PER-FECT (line from a One Direction video ~ I'm so hip!)!
She took some selfies so I stole a couple of them:)

Talk about a million dollar smile!
Man - I love this girl young lady!  Such a proud mama!

Make sure you pop in again this week because I will be sharing some author's purpose ideas!
Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!
